Milligan offers electric vehicle charging station

MILLIGAN — The first electric vehicle charging station in Carter County has been installed on Milligan University’s campus in partnership with Elizabethton Electric System and Seven States.
“Milligan remains committed to being good stewards of God’s creation, and we are grateful that our partnership with Elizabethton Electric System and Seven States provides our campus with a convenient electric charging station for local residents and our Milligan community,” said President Dr. Bill Greer. “We hope this charging station will make Carter County more accessible and convenient for those with electric cars, so they can explore the beauty of our surrounding region, local businesses and our campus.”
The charging station is located in the parking lot across from Milligan’s newly renovated McMahan Student Center.
The charging station offers Level 2, 7.2 kilowatt chargers, and two electric vehicles will be able to charge simultaneously. Users will pay based on the length of time spent charging, and payments can be made through the ChargePoint App.
The addition of an electric charging station continues Milligan’s commitment to implementing green initiatives across campus. In 2016, Milligan overhauled campus infrastructure to reduce energy consumption by more than 20%. The improvements included replacing more than half of the HVAC equipment on campus; renovating the P.H. Welshimer Memorial Library with new ceilings and lighting; significantly reducing water use across campus by approximately 6,722,000 gallons per year; and creating a website and central energy dashboard to monitor energy use in real time.
